It will grow great in a pot or in the ground, and ripens mid-season. Needs 700 chill hours. Self fruitful.

Ask a Question
  • Can this bare fruit still in Southern Arizona winters or does Southern Arizona winters provide enough chill hours for this fruit tree to bare fruit?

    Arctic Babe requires 700+ chill hours. Anywhere south of Prescott, AZ is probably too warm through the winter, but your mileage may vary and climates are prone to change over time.

  • How leaf curl treated?

    Leaf curl is treated with a copper fungicide, applied just before bud break.

  • Can this plane can grown in OR?

    Yes if treated for peach leaf curl

Perfect fruit tree!

It arrived in a very good condition. It's larger than what I expected. It looks like it's a 3 years old tree. The truck is very strong and there are lots of branches. I planted it in a container right away and look forward to seeing the blossoms soon.
